There aren't enough superlatives for the work that J.J. Watt and his foundation do. In addition to assisting veterans, he raised millions after Hurricane Harvey to assist with the rebuilding effort. He is a truly outstanding young man.

Here is a good reason to buy Reebok and dump Nike. Already had gone in that direction as I find Reebok more comfortable than Nike anyhow.

Ernest Dodson won more than $275,000 in the North Carolina Education Lottery on Monday. Dodson paid just one dollar for the Cash 5 ticket he purchased at Sons of Nie, an Asian market in Greensboro. “I about fell over,” he said in a statement released by the lottery, the proceeds of which benefit North Carolina education. Cash 5 pulls a winner every night, with jackpots starting at $100,000. He already seems to know exactly where it is going: The $195,757 Dodson will bring home after taxes will pay off his house and car, with some left over. “I’m tickled to death that I can be debt free,” he said.

Following Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd grilling Republican Senator Rand Paul and tossing softballs to Democratic Congressman Jim Himes on Sunday, regarding impeachment, the political panel admitted that House Democrats had an uphill battle in upcoming public hearings. The worried journalists urged liberal lawmakers to “dramatize” those hearings as much as possible and hoped some of the witnesses would cry or become “emotional.”“I think in those two segments, with Rand Paul and Jim Himes, we had a good snapshot of how difficult this is going to be for the – for the Democrats to convince the country that this is extraordinary behavior that disqualifies the President from office,” T

Years later, King's nephew, John Cooper, was killed in action in 1944 while serving with the Third U.S. Army in Germany. The bereaved King wanted to create a day celebrating all veterans.

According to Carter, the attacks against Trump are nothing more or less than a "Witch Hunt 2.0" "The anger and the backlash," Carter said about liberals' reaction to Trump making sure that his ambassadors do what he wants, "is unbelievable. And this is something, it's really quite extraordinary. I call it Witch Hunt 2.0. This is now Witch Hunt 2.0, with Ukraine."

SAN FRANCISCO – Fix global warming or cook dinner on a gas stove? That’s the choice for people in 13 cities and one county in California that have enacted new zoning codes encouraging or requiring all-electric new construction. The codes, most of them passed since June, are meant to keep builders from running natural gas lines to new homes and apartments, with an eye toward creating fewer legacy gas hookups as the nation shifts to carbon-neutral energy sources. For proponents, it's a change that must be made to fight climate change. For natural gas companies, it's a threat to their

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg leads President Donald Trump by 6 percentage points in a hypothetical 2020 matchup, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll. Forty-three percent of likely voters would back Bloomberg if the election were held today, compared to 37% who would vote for Trump. Twenty-one percent those polled, however, said they don’t know or don’t have an opinion. The poll comes as Bloomberg considers jumping into the Democratic presidential primary. The billionaire is still not sure if he’ll enter the race, a source told CNBC, but he is troubled by what he sees in the
Why Study Latin? 32 replies

Oxford professor Nicola Gardini urges people to read and study Latin. He believes that Latin is the antidote for the modern age, which seems transfixed by the spontaneous, the easy, and the ephemeral. His new book, Long Live Latin: The Pleasures of a Useless Language, argues that Latin combines truth and beauty with the timelessness of art. People should study Latin for all the reasons people should read literature. In his Confessions, St. Augustine (354–430 C.E.) “placed the learning of Latin under God’s purview,” Gardini writes. Augustine believed Latin drew a child closer to God, “the truest truth.” Gardini argues that Latin contains the logic and precision of math

(Snip) Haley said that the two men “confided in me that when they resisted the president, they weren't being insubordinate, they were trying to save the country” and how “Tillerson went on to tell me the reason he resisted the president's decisions was because, if he didn't, people would die…." Haley, however, was not impressed.

Seattle Times columnist Danny Westneat recently wrote: “In terms of carbon emissions that lead to global warming, there’s probably nothing worse we can do on an individual basis than take an intercontinental flight.” Apparently, he was mistaken. Shortly thereafter, The Times published University of Washington Professor Emeritus Stephen Warren’s reply to Mr. Westneat: “Actually, there is something worse. Having a child.” According to an article on the website Campus Reform, Professor Warren suggested that average children add the carbon equivalent of 2,700 round-trip flights from Seattle to Europe to their parents’ carbon legacy. He continued: “By choosing to reproduce, you’re responsible for some fraction of the carbon-dioxide emissions of your

On Saturday, San Francisco voters elected the son of two former Weather Underground murderers to serve as their District Attorney. The voters deserve all the hell that is about to break loose. Progressive candidate Chesa Boudin wants to free criminals but prosecute police and ICE agents for doing their jobs. It's no surprise Boudin hates cops so much. His parents did, too. Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert were terrorists in the Weather Underground who murdered two police officers and a security guard during a 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored security car outside New York City.

Though The View has been on television since 1997 and its numerous hosts have come and gone, it is a mystery as to who watches it. In its formative years, it may have been watchable, even occasionally newsworthy; Barbra Walters was an actual journalist. Now, from the clips that are picked up and aired by other news outlets, it has clearly devolved into a slugfest -- vicious, leftist women attack their guests if remotely conservative. There is zero respect for any guest with a politically incorrect opinion. They slobbered over Chelsea Clinton as if she were the Queen of England and attacked Donald Trump Jr.
